Corn Plastic Coffee Mug - Environmentally friendly!

Corn Plastic Coffee Mug - Environmentally friendly!

A group of Art Center College of Design students from my Design for Sustainability class designed this mug to replace the polystyrene and paper cups offered in the school cafeteria-plus you get $0.25 off the cost of your beverage!

This particular design has a silicone lid that securely attaches to the cup. The outside is matte and the inside is glazed. I prefer a version that Starbucks put out a few months ago. Their version is pretty much the same, but the outside is glazed (and of course has their logo) and the lid is plastic with a silicone liner to keep liquids sealed in. The key difference between the two is the price. "I Am Not A Paper Cup" is roughly $20 and the Starbucks version is $12. The upsides to either is that if you are a daily coffee drinker, you don't have to trash a paper cup and plastic lid every time you get take-out coffee. The downside is that both of them hold about 8 oz. - not favorable if you normally order a "grande" at Starbucks. Another issue for commuters is that it is not spill-proof or splash-proof. And finally, the Starbucks version CANNOT go into the microwave.

  • I love how this looks like old wooden planks at first and I can only imagine how it feels (soft) and smells (leathery). Insanely priced for a rug not even three feet across, but awesome nonetheless.

Lightweight, waterproof, reusable, affordable. We adore this assortment of 5 environmentally friendly (and totally groovy) Envirosax bags - rolled up in a carrying pouch small enough to stow into a glove box or a handbag. With reinforced seams, each surprisingly large bag holds the equivalent weight of 2 supermarket plastic bags. And…they’re really, really cute!!

I just don't want to order online, so being able to select one from a store that I am standing in is what I've been looking for. If I was smart I would've just bought this one (or the countless others like it) months ago and dealt with the shipping.

What happens when you’re asked to build the city of tomorrow… today? Set on the rugged streets of South Boston, The Greening of Southie is the story of a revolutionary Green Building, and the men and women who bring it to life. From wheatboard cabinetry to recycled steel, bamboo flooring to dual-flush toilets, The Macallen Building is something different––a leader in the emerging field of environmentally friendly design. But Boston’s steel-toed construction workers aren’t sure they like it. And when things on the building start to go wrong, the young development team has to keep the project from unraveling. Funny and poignant, The Greening of Southie is a story of bold ideas, unlikely environmentalists, and the future of the way we live. Created by the co-producers and stars of King Corn, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, The Greening of Southie features cinematography by Taylor Gentry, innovative time-lapse animation, and music by the Brooklyn-based duo Force Theory

  • I've been using reusuable bags to shop for the past year + and it feels great. Did you know the average American consumes 750 plastic bags a year? eek!

Jetson Green explains the "how it is green" part: The Zody Chair is Cradle to Cradle certified at the Gold level. It's made with up to 51% recycled content and up to 98% recyclable materials. It can be taken apart (in about 15 minutes, although I haven't tried that yet) and easily recycled when you decide the process of creative destruction needs to take its course. It has no PVC and is GreenGuard certified. The Zody Chair can help you towards LEED certification, too. It's also the first, if not the only, chair endorsed by the American Physical Therapy Association. I can't keep up with all the awards it's received.
